Time To Get Rid Of Winter Clutter

Did you realize that your clutter can be seasonal?  First, it helps to define what clutter is. Generally speaking, clutter is anything that is laying around your house that doesn’t belong there. Everything should have a place and everything should be in its place. That is especially true with things like coats, backpacks, boots and other winter clothing items. But it can also be true of winter “toys.” Things like sleds, snowboards and skis also should have a proper storage space and not just be tossed on the garage floor. Once those things are put away then they are no longer considered clutter. However, there could still be a lot of stuff “left over.” That’s the winter clutter that you want to get rid of and the best approach to that is hiring Junk King Columbus.

Set Up Sleeping Arrangements

If you are surprised by overnight guests, then it’s understandable if you need to figure out the sleeping arrangements on the fly.

You can also have a little basket in the bathroom with toiletries for them. And make sure you’ve got extra toilet paper. You don’t want to have a guest asking for that!

Add Little Touches

Little touches like flowers in a vase or water bottles in the spare bedroom are a great way to make your guests feel welcome. You can even give them a battery-operated candle for the bathroom and extra blankets and slippers.
